The Samoan prop made his Test debut in 2009, going on to represent his country at the 2011 RWC, while playing for Hawkes Bay in the NPC.
He picked up a winners medal with Samoa at the Pacific Nations Cup in 2012. Mulipola was an instant hit with the Tigers fans, who have come to love all the characters in the popular front row.
Having been selected for Samoa to represent them in the 2015 RWC injury forced him out of the squad a week before kick off. He was replaced by Census Johnston.
Capped 20 times by Samoa and with the ability to play on both sides of the scrum, the 6 foot 4, 128kg forward has became a firm fans’ favourite at Leicester with his explosive ball-carrying and scrummaging.

In April 2018, Leicester Tigers announced that Mulipola will be a Newcastle Falcons player after the destructive prop agreed a deal to join the Kingston Park club.
As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Mulipola has had 23 European Cups appearances scoring 1 try.
